~ Andrew Weil

To safely utilize any natural remedy to treat a skin problem, it is unwise to use any remedy that has an ingredient you are allergic to, such as dairy products. Moreover, consider the size of the area that requires treatment. For example, if you have an entire arm covered with rash, prior to treating the whole arm, test the remedy first on a small area. This would prevent any further skin irritation by it. Also, remember that you may not experience immediate relief or disappearance of rash because many remedies often take a few days to show their efficacy. As mentioned earlier, it is critical to proceed with caution while implementing a natural or a home remedy to treat skin conditions. Knowing correctly what is being applied to your skin and following proper directions, you will see desired positive results.
